Make the most of ripe summer tomatoes with the best scalloped side dish, baked with cheese, breadcrumbs, garlic, and herbs.




  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter.
  2. Arrange sliced tomatoes in even rows in the prepared pan, sprinkling 1 tablespoon shredded mozzarella in between each slice.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, basil, thyme, and oregano. Drizzle over the top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle the top with salt and pepper.
  4. In a separate small bowl, stir together the parmesan cheese and toasted breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the top of the tomatoes.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the top is golden brown and bubbling.
  6. Garnish with additional fresh herbs and serve warm.
